Hyderabad (Telangana), July 17 (ANI): A six-year-old boy died in Hyderabad after he was allegedly beaten up by another minor at his school, said police officials on Sunday.

Mohammed Ibrahim, a first standard student, suffered serious injuries in his private parts after he was allegedly kicked by a seven-year-old senior on Tuesday.

After he reached home, his parents took Ibrahim to a local hospital when he complained of severe pain.

On Saturday, he succumbed to his injuries after undergoing two surgeries.

Ibrahim's father, Abdul Mujeeb filed a complaint with the police alleging negligence on the part of the school management.

"He (boy) developed some complications during treatment. Surgery was also conducted. Even after surgery, he couldn't be cured properly and died yesterday (July 16). Later, his parents came to the police station and lodged a case. We have registered a case. We went to school for inquiry. School authorities told us that they were not aware about the incident," Deputy Commissioner of Hyderabad Police, Venkateshwar Rao, he said.

The aggrieved father demanded strong action against the authorities of Promising Scholars High School.

"The concerned authorities must take stringent action against school. The school is very irresponsible. What was the management doing when this incident took place at its premises?" Mujeeb told ANI.

Police investigation is underway to ascertain the truth of the allegations.(ANI)
